Hi Robert, you are going to have to remove the steering knuckle in order to remove the ball joint. The joints are very difficult to remove on this model. You will probably need to have them pressed or purchase a ball joint tool. I'll post some instructions.
I've got the knuckle off, Marty. Will wait for your instructions. Thanks.
Ok Robert, Click here for the instructions for pressing the joint out and in.
Click here for a ball joint clamp.
Let me know if you need anything else.
Hey, Marty, could you be more specific about the removal of the steering knuckle. Apparently what I removed was not the knuckle! And are there any other parts I will need other than the ball joints after I remove the steering knuckle?
Hi Robert, sorry for the wait I had to leave earlier.
Remove And Install Steering Knuckle
Remove Front Wheel Hub
There are no additional parts needed unless you find problems when you take it apart.
Thanks, Marty. I will print these out in the morning and give it a try. Had some things to do myself
You're welcome Robert. Let me know if you need anything.
